Scope and Contents

This collection was donated to the University Archives by Distinguished Professor Emeritus Wayne S. Knutson on October 15, 1994. Additional materials were donated by Edith B. Siegrist on August 20, 2007.  The collection is comprised of five series: Printed Material, Photograph Series A, Photograph Series B, Oversized Material, and Negatives.

The Printed Material series contain correspondence, posters, programs, news clippings and various ephemera from the University of South Dakota theatre department. There are also materials pertaining to the Vermillion Community Theatre, the South Dakota Performing Arts Company, and the Black Hills Playhouse.

Photograph Series A contains photographs from theatre productions.

Photograph Series B contains photographs that have been segregated from Photograph Series A because of photograph deterioration.

The Oversized Material series contain posters, stage designs/sketches, and various ephemera from the University of South Dakota theatre department.

The Negatives series contain images from the University of South Dakota theatre department. They are stored in our sub-zero storage facility.

All of the five series are dated from 1938 to the present. They are also arranged by the theatre productions themselves, season and then in order of production.
